    Earthlink support will not help. I have windows XP. I tried the usual, Clicking

    on LAN. Clicking proxy. Typing an IP address in for a proxy and port #. What

    should I do? Thank you.

    A few ISP's have blocked proxying. I know that AOL does this and I due believe Earthlink does as well. They do this because of their parental controls feature.

    I was on AOL about 2 weeks ago. My

    proxy worked there. I asked Earthlink. They told me NAV 2001 conflicts with

    proxies. I do not have NAV. Then they said that is part of thier network

    service which I did not buy. They quit trying to help me. Thank you for

    replying. Bump for more info. Thanks.
